  • Music Park Festival: Three of the Middle East’s Biggest Bands on One Line-Up

    While many are still bemoaning the end of the summer season, there is a bright-side, in that now the focus returns to Cairo – and that means is plenty of concerts, parties and events right here in the capital.

    One of the biggest of the month is taking place this weekend at The Playground at Cairo Festival City. This Friday, the Music Park Festival is bringing together three of the biggest bands in the region together for what is one of the highlight events of the weekend.

    First up on stage is the band that took the Arab world by storm back in 2012 with their self-titled debut album. Jordanian rockers, El Morabba3, formed three years prior to their breakout release and the Amman natives now stand as one of the most popular bands in their homeland and beyond.

    Then comes a band who one could convincingly and easily argue to be the the biggest in the Middle East – Mashrou’ Leila. With four acclaimed studio albums to their names, there are few controversial, progressive and popular musical collective than Hamed Sinno and co. – and their return to Egypt is long over due.

    Rounding-off the night, meanwhile, is a group whose stock continues to rise with every passing week; Cairo’s own Sharmoofers. In a short few years, the eccentric and oh, so jolly group has transformed from a cult-followed band on social media, to one of the most popular acts in the country.

    And so there you have it; three big bands, one massive night. For more information, call 16826 or click here.
